From the writes of his wife in this experiences, Yeats formulated theories about life and history and found that within each 2000 year era, emblematic moments occurred at the midpoints of the 1000 year halves.

Now, in the funeral prayers, in the 103rd Psalm, and above all in Kaddish, she found the right and only words for her comfort and lamentation. During the intervening months (between my first seeing her, in April, and her grandmother’s death that November) Rebecca - like all our ‘clients’ (an odious word then becoming fashionable, supposedly less degrading than ‘patients’), was pressed into a variety of workshops and classes, as part of our Developmental and Cognitive Drive (these too were ‘in’ terms at the time).
